The GWEN program of the High Point Community Foundation’s Women in Motion initiative is getting underway for a second year with three new workshops in partnership with Guilford Technical Community College.

As reported by the High Point Enterprise’s Cinde Ingram:

All working women in the greater High Point area are invited to attend a series of free workshops designed to empower them and help them navigate life transitions.

“We’re excited to offer these classes to support women in their careers and lives by helping them explore ideas and expand and excel in their personal and professional goals, which will impact their communities in positive ways,” said Lisa Brayton, founder of Women in Motion of High Point.

WIM is a diverse group of women developing partnerships and programs that help women take the next step personally and professionally.

An initiative of the High Point Community Foundation, it serves High Point and the surrounding communities, including Jamestown, Archdale,

Trinity and Thomasville. Speaking to about 25 WIM members and supporters at the High Point Museum on Wednesday, WIM’s upcoming series of Gathering Women for Education and Nurturing workshops will address topics women need to “expand their horizons of networking with others who can support and help them reach their full potential,” Brayton said.
